(06/22 14:02:06) Calum Traveler: yeah, fil live is just wrapping up it sounds like

(06/22 14:02:21) Calum Traveler: shorah, X
(06/22 14:02:26) Cpt.Jericho leans left
(06/22 14:02:27) [X] leans right
(06/22 14:02:35) [X]: Hey cal 🙂
(06/22 14:02:42) [X]: Seeing what its all about
(06/22 14:02:44) Dni_seeker 5: Steve? Andy? Mick? Who are you talking about?
(06/22 14:02:45) To Buddies: reminder: Town Hall in Great Tree Hood starting in the next few min
(06/22 14:02:45) From Carl Palmner (I’m on the surface, be back in a minute):
(06/22 14:02:54) To Buddies: (AKA: Very soon XD)
(06/22 14:02:54) From Tiernan Quinlan (I’m on the surface, be back in a minute):
(06/22 14:02:54) From Carl Palmner (I’m on the surface, be back in a minute):
(06/22 14:03:04) LividLiquid: Cpt. Jericho quoted Ballroom Blitz and I was reciprocating.
(06/22 14:03:07) [X]: Tick tick tick
(06/22 14:03:21) Calum Traveler: so, in essence, we’re reviving an old standby of the DRC’s,
(06/22 14:03:25) Calum Traveler: The Town Hall meeting
(06/22 14:03:41) Calum Traveler: back in oh, late 2006, the DRC held a buncha meetings like this, of a sort.
(06/22 14:03:42) Dni_seeker 5: Hello, Isa and Carl
(06/22 14:03:43) TikiBear is sad… so he can be the town cruer
(06/22 14:03:46) TikiBear: crier
(06/22 14:03:53) Carl Palmner waves hello
(06/22 14:03:59) [X]: No stream or voice right? just text?
(06/22 14:04:01) Calum Traveler: mostly as a way to keep folks up to date on current events,
(06/22 14:04:05) Calum Traveler: yes, just KI text
(06/22 14:04:09) [X]: K
(06/22 14:04:27) Jules Lavisham: Just KI text. Makes it easier to log and refer back to.
(06/22 14:04:28) Calum Traveler: this event will be chatlogged for posterity
(06/22 14:04:38) Calum Traveler: also, will help us with tallying votes after
(06/22 14:04:46) Jules Lavisham: Ah, shorah Doc
(06/22 14:04:49) Carl Palmner: Come to the community room for the Town Hall meeting!
(06/22 14:04:52) Calum Traveler: Kelsei apologies for not making it, btw,
(06/22 14:04:55) Ereshkigal: Hi everyone!
(06/22 14:05:00) Calum Traveler: a chair broke on her last night while she was visiting family
(06/22 14:05:02) Calum Traveler: hurt her leg
(06/22 14:05:02) From Carl Palmner in Great Tree’s(3) Hood: Come to the Great Tree Hood for the Town Hall meeting!
(06/22 14:05:03) Tiernan Quinlan: Hullo all!
(06/22 14:05:05) Tiernan Quinlan waves hello
(06/22 14:05:10) [X]: Awww
(06/22 14:05:16) [X]: Hey isa 🙂
(06/22 14:05:26) Ereshkigal: Oooh, I hope she’s okay! Is it broken?
(06/22 14:05:31) Calum Traveler: she’s fine, just a little sore
(06/22 14:05:35) Calum Traveler: but resting easy
(06/22 14:05:40) [X]: Good
(06/22 14:05:53) Calum Traveler: she was very annoyed she’d have to miss this, though,
(06/22 14:05:53) Jules Lavisham: That’s a relief
(06/22 14:06:10) Calum Traveler: sent me a bunch of her own notes, so, apologies if I’m a bit scattered and unrehearsed during my part
(06/22 14:06:37) Calum Traveler: This is mostly Jules’ show to lead though, by vote of Brittish speaking voice opinion.
(06/22 14:06:50) Calum Traveler: 😛
(06/22 14:06:53) Jules Lavisham: Heh!
(06/22 14:07:09) Dni_seeker 5: Is everyone here?
(06/22 14:07:11) Jules Lavisham: Being raised on BBC comedies from a young age has to be good for SOMETHING, right
(06/22 14:07:39) ALotOf: no way to drag NoMore over here… he said politics always annoy him… I have time during downloading illegally D’ni movies…
(06/22 14:07:49) Calum Traveler starts to laugh
(06/22 14:07:54) ALotOf: 🙂
(06/22 14:08:05) Calum Traveler nods to Jules
(06/22 14:08:07) Dni_seeker 5: The D’ni had movies?
(06/22 14:08:12) Calum Traveler: I think that’s about everyone we’ll get for now
(06/22 14:08:20) ALotOf: Documentaries about them…
(06/22 14:08:23) Cpt.Jericho: Has he found the adult section in the new library?
(06/22 14:08:29) Ereshkigal: I want to see the illegal D’ni movies 🙂
(06/22 14:08:29) ALotOf: lol
(06/22 14:08:31) Jules Lavisham: Ok, that looks like my cue!
(06/22 14:08:48) Jules Lavisham: Shorah everyone, and welcome to this, the first explorer Town Hall!
(06/22 14:08:49) [X]: ‘adult section’ is the cue?
(06/22 14:09:04) Calum Traveler snorts and shakes head slightly,
(06/22 14:09:08) Ereshkigal: That’s promising 😀
(06/22 14:09:15) Jules Lavisham: Those of us who have been taking an active role in restoring ages and new areas of the Cavern are trialling these little get-togethers
(06/22 14:09:19) [X]: Got my interest ;p
(06/22 14:09:36) Jules Lavisham: mainly as a means of giving the explorer communit a chance to generally touch base,
(06/22 14:09:49) Jules Lavisham: let you all know what’s been going on
(06/22 14:10:04) Carl Palmner: Taking attendance. Please keep commentary to a minimum while the host is speaking.
(06/22 14:10:09) Jules Lavisham: give you the run down on what’s on the agenda in the coming months visa vis new ages and the like
(06/22 14:10:33) Jules Lavisham: Thanks to the tireless efforts of a number of peope – some of whom I’m pleased to see here today –
(06/22 14:10:47) Jules Lavisham: we’ve seen the Cavern getting a little busier as of late.
(06/22 14:11:08) Jules Lavisham: We’ve seen some fresh faced newcomes bringing with them an infectious sense of energy and enthusiasm.
(06/22 14:11:31) Jules Lavisham: And we’ve seen the return of some old hands from decadres past, along with the resurrection of some highly esteemed oganisations from that time.
(06/22 14:11:49) Jules Lavisham: One of which has been kind enough to allow us the use of their neighbourhood for this event.
(06/22 14:12:16) Jules Lavisham: But new or old, seeing all of you bring this old place to life… well, it’s been quite the joy to watch unfold.
(06/22 14:12:28) Jules Lavisham: So, yes.
(06/22 14:12:45) Jules Lavisham: The plan here now is to first bring you up to speed with the current goings on
(06/22 14:12:59) Jules Lavisham: and there HAVE been some interesting goings-on, let me tell you.
(06/22 14:13:20) Jules Lavisham: We’ll then look at what’s coming in the near-future, give you some things to generally keep a look out for,
(06/22 14:13:38) Jules Lavisham: which will include some ways for you to help us with the restoration efforts.
(06/22 14:14:02) Jules Lavisham: But also, we want to give you all the opportunity to influence certain ways in which we go about our work down here.
(06/22 14:14:21) Jules Lavisham: And if all goes to plan, you’ll be able to do that very thing here today.
(06/22 14:14:45) Jules Lavisham: Finally, if there’s time, we’ll have an open Q&A session at the end. Because why ever not.
(06/22 14:14:55) Jules Lavisham: Sound good?
(06/22 14:15:04) Thumbs up from [X]
(06/22 14:15:05) Sestra: Yes
(06/22 14:15:06) Dni_seeker 5: yes
(06/22 14:15:06) Isa =^.^= nods her head
(06/22 14:15:11) Thumbs up from thor-ham
(06/22 14:15:16) Thumbs up from ALotOf
(06/22 14:15:19) Jules Lavisham: Tidy.
(06/22 14:15:34) Jules Lavisham: Ok, just before we get underway good and proper, usual AGM rules apply.
(06/22 14:15:56) Calum Traveler: dont press the blue button, etc….
(06/22 14:16:02) Jules Lavisham: Chatter to a minimum where possible if that’s ok, any questions get pinged to Carl if called for,
(06/22 14:16:13) Jules Lavisham: yes, for the love of everything, do NOT push the blue button.
(06/22 14:16:21) Jules Lavisham: Seriously. No being That Guy.
(06/22 14:16:28) Calum Traveler: we dont need garbled D’ni over this chatlog, nosiree…
(06/22 14:16:46) Jules Lavisham: Right, ok, let’s kick off with current happenings.
(06/22 14:16:51) Cpt.Jericho hasn’t seen That Guy for a long time
(06/22 14:16:51) ALotOf: push the red one… thats sirrus… 🙂
(06/22 14:17:15) Jules Lavisham: Now, for the last few months, I’m sorry to say there’s been a rash of thefts and vandalism taking place here in the Cavern.
(06/22 14:17:17) Carl Palmner: Yes, I can moderate questions. There will be a specific section for that at the end.
(06/22 14:17:22) PhoenixPearls: Actally, before you start the storyline update, I have RPG matters that have come to my attention.
(06/22 14:17:59) PhoenixPearls: Just to ensure that everyone is safe and on the save page.
(06/22 14:18:07) Calum Traveler: what concerns?
(06/22 14:18:56) Jules Lavisham: Concerns, PP?
(06/22 14:19:12) To Carl Palmner: sighs
(06/22 14:19:20) PhoenixPearls: Sorry. Well, let me lay them out.
(06/22 14:19:57) PhoenixPearls: I keep getting an error msg I must have a symbol or something that doesn’t work here.
(06/22 14:20:09) Calum Traveler: that sounds like a KI error,
(06/22 14:20:17) Calum Traveler: message me about it privately and i’ll help you through it.
(06/22 14:20:23) PhoenixPearls: Role-play could be a great addition to the MOULa, but that is all it can ever be, an addition. It won’t replace the history and culture the MOULa community has built over the past decade and a half or longer.
(06/22 14:20:49) PhoenixPearls: The current reality of MOULa doesn’t have the infrastructure to support role-playing. Role-play includes in-game character sheets, character progression mechanics, role-playing game rules. Currently there is nothing to safely support role-play in the Cavern.
(06/22 14:20:50) Jules Lavisham: (I don’t think any of us are planning to do that.)
(06/22 14:21:07) PhoenixPearls: MOULa is a game that Role-played can be in MOULa, but MOULa not a role-playing game. The community members come as themselves, and the common expectation is that others do the same.
(06/22 14:21:13) Calum Traveler: (To state, URU has always had its own unique state of RP different from standard RPG
(06/22 14:21:22) PhoenixPearls: All role-play needs OOC (out of character) spaces where nobody is IC (in character). Tabletop, forum-based, chat-based one-on-one, LARP (Live Action Role Play): there are always both places and signals that let you leave play at a moment’s notice. These things are vital for player-safety and exist for a reason.
(06/22 14:21:28) Carl Palmner: PP, I don’t think anyone intends it to be. Let’s discuss your concerns in private at a later time. Right now, let’s let Jules continue.
(06/22 14:21:45) PhoenixPearls: All role-play must be grounded in informed consent. That means all rules and expectations need to be communicated and negotiated OOC before play starts. Again, this is vital for player safety.
(06/22 14:21:56) Professor Askew: Sigh……
(06/22 14:22:00) PhoenixPearls: The MOULa community includes both non-native speakers and neurodivergent people. Both groups will have difficulties telling the difference between play and regular communication if it’s not clearly marked. Finding out the friend you think you made is just a made-up character is damaging!
(06/22 14:22:16) Calum Traveler: (We’re following in the steps that Cyan started with, and evolving to make things better. We understand your concerns, and we’ve been working to communicate who our characters are before hand to avoid such confusions.
(06/22 14:22:17) PhoenixPearls: Rules and regulations are necessary. Anyone wanting to join a play session or storyline needs to read and understand those before engaging with you. This is for their safety and for yours!
(06/22 14:22:49) PhoenixPearls: Role-play is make-believe, if people interact with you not knowing it’s role-play, it’s not role-play on their end at all.
(06/22 14:22:55) Carl Palmner: I was trying to message someone–about an entirely different person. My apologies, Phoenix.
(06/22 14:23:04) Jules Lavisham: (
(06/22 14:23:10) PhoenixPearls: 1As Storytellers wanting to role-play in MOULa, what are you doing to ensure everyone is safe? Emotionally? Mentally? Socially?
(06/22 14:23:19) Ereshkigal: It’s a good point, though! Cyan’s way of doing things made people uncomfortable sometimes. We should avoid that!
(06/22 14:23:22) Carl Palmner: Someone was messaging me about someone on Discord.
(06/22 14:23:26) Tiernan Quinlan: (This has all been taken into consideration. This is an IC event. Please address your concerns to the group in Discord, Phoenix.)
(06/22 14:23:30) Isa =^.^=: this is a bit disruptive to the Town Meeting @ Phoenix.
(06/22 14:24:02) Tiernan Quinlan: (I am an experienced online gamemaster, and have discussed this in detail with the Storyteller group.)
(06/22 14:24:11) Calum Traveler: (Yes, we’re glad to address these concerns in an OOC meeting, which we’ve already had one such event of already.
(06/22 14:24:13) Carl Palmner: Again, let’s discuss this at a later time, PhoenixPearls. Sorry, I’m trying to field messages at the same time as paying attention here. We can discuss OOC concerns elsewhere. I’m happy to chat with you after the meeting.
(06/22 14:24:42) Ereshkigal: Always being honest and open is important, even when RP’ing. We should always remember to empathise with each other, ad never let a character or a storyline get in the way of that
(06/22 14:24:55) Carl Palmner: And again, my apologies for my misleading typo earlier.
(06/22 14:25:02) Calum Traveler: (we’re going to greath legths to ensure folks are aware who our characters are, when our characters are characters.
(06/22 14:25:09) PhoenixPearls: I take that to mean there isn’t a solid foundation. It would have been the 1st thing presented.\
(06/22 14:25:09) Carl Palmner: Let’s let Jules continue with the meeting.
(06/22 14:25:23) [X]: let’s just have a listen to see how we can have fun with all of this rather than look for harms. everyone knows where the X is
(06/22 14:25:31) Jules Lavisham: Alright. Now, where was I…
(06/22 14:25:32) PhoenixPearls bows
(06/22 14:25:38) Isa =^.^=: exactly X
(06/22 14:25:46) Jules Lavisham thumbs through his notes
(06/22 14:25:47) Calum Traveler: (Just to conclude, we’ve had a previous meeting on this)
(06/22 14:25:49) Brigid raises an eyebrow
(06/22 14:25:58) Calum Traveler: (We’ll likely have many more meetings on this)
(06/22 14:25:58) Jules Lavisham: Dear gods, my handwriting’s getting worse every year, I tell you…
(06/22 14:26:11) Calum Traveler: (This is an evolving thing.)
(06/22 14:26:16) Jules Lavisham: Ah! Here we go.
(06/22 14:26:17) Brigid: Did I miss anything important?
(06/22 14:26:45) Calum Traveler: no, not yet,
(06/22 14:26:46) Jules Lavisham: So yes. For the last few months, there’ve been a rash of thefts and vandalism taking place here in the Cavern.
(06/22 14:27:02) ALotOf: some roleplaying concerns… but it can be discussed afterwards or on discord…
(06/22 14:27:10) Jules Lavisham: We’ve had explorer possessions going missing – writings supplies, restoration equipment, and –
(06/22 14:27:13) Jules Lavisham squints
(06/22 14:27:18) Calum Traveler: a chess set, yes.
(06/22 14:27:20) Dni_seeker 5: and I was attacked!
(06/22 14:27:23) Jules Lavisham: a garden gnome.
(06/22 14:27:23) Calum Traveler: also a garden gnome.
(06/22 14:27:47) Jules Lavisham: Now, over time, these have been escalating
(06/22 14:28:03) Jules Lavisham: in particular with the sabotage of Dr Quinlan’s Sanctuary Clinic,
(06/22 14:28:28) Jules Lavisham: complete with being defaced with – well, sentiments that quite frankly have no business being expressed here, or indeed anywhere else for that matter.
(06/22 14:28:33) Dni_seeker 5: At the All Guilds Meeting, I announced that I would restore Todelmer, do you all remember that?
(06/22 14:28:48) Calum Traveler: Dni_seeker 5, in a bit
(06/22 14:28:52) Calum Traveler: let jules speak please 🙂
(06/22 14:28:53) [X]: :$ no?
(06/22 14:28:57) Dni_seeker 5: alright
(06/22 14:29:15) Jules Lavisham: While it was hoped that those carrying out these activities would eventually move on,
(06/22 14:29:47) Jules Lavisham: only a few days ago we’ve discovered that the Overflow Station has been straight-up ransacked by a group of masked intruders.
(06/22 14:30:09) Jules Lavisham: While thankfully the Station was unmanned and nobody was injured, extensive damage has been reported to the equipment
(06/22 14:30:35) Brigid swears in gaelic
(06/22 14:30:46) Jules Lavisham: But this was a thorough, meticulously planned endeavour, with the practical upshot of causing significant delay to what we had hoped to have been an imminent public release.
(06/22 14:31:10) Jules Lavisham: There are some steps that we plan to take in the face of this, and its our hope that you will be able to play a part in doing so.
(06/22 14:31:20) Jules Lavisham: We’ll get into that in a bit.
(06/22 14:31:44) Jules Lavisham: Right, on cheerier topics, we come to our friend Benavud!
(06/22 14:32:03) Jules Lavisham: A number of you may have had the pleasure of making his acquaintance several weeks ago, in this very hood.
(06/22 14:32:35) Jules Lavisham: But for those who aren’t familiar, he is a fellow explorer who took a bad step about a month ago and was found inside the lower levels of the Great Library.
(06/22 14:33:02) Jules Lavisham: Following several weeks of treatment from Dr Quinlan, he’s now back on his feet and taken up residence in the cavern,
(06/22 14:33:08) Jules Lavisham: much like many of us has.
(06/22 14:33:24) Dni_seeker 5: He has no memory, no books in his relto, he has a journey shirt, and he’s not technically human.
(06/22 14:33:35) Jules Lavisham: We’ve fielded a few questions about Ben in the past few weeks. To quickly summarise –
(06/22 14:33:46) Carl Palmner: DS5, please let Jules speak. He’s hosting this one 🙂
(06/22 14:33:51) Dni_seeker 5: okay
(06/22 14:34:21) Jules Lavisham: no, his memory is not firing on all cylinders.
(06/22 14:34:52) Jules Lavisham: Yes, the bloodwork in Tenny’s recent tests does indicate he’s not from this world, despite speaking fluent English and recognising certain aspects of surface culture.
(06/22 14:35:23) Jules Lavisham: And yes, he was found wearing a Yeesha shirt, but he has no Yeesha books in his Relto and he doesn’t remember taking the journey.
(06/22 14:35:52) Jules Lavisham: All in all, bit of an enigma all round
(06/22 14:36:09) Jules Lavisham: But then again, that’s about par for the course down here.
(06/22 14:36:12) Keith Lord: Oh fun
(06/22 14:36:41) Keith Lord: Sorry, meant to be a PM.
(06/22 14:36:54) Jules Lavisham: Oh yes, while I think about it, I want to welcome Cal back from the age of Rei’schu following a bout of quarentine he had to endure.
(06/22 14:37:11) Brigid raises both eyebrows in suprise.
(06/22 14:37:15) Jules Lavisham: We’ll be getting to Rei’schu in a bit, because good LORD that is a whole thing in of itself.
(06/22 14:37:24) Calum Traveler hums slightly
(06/22 14:37:26) Jules Lavisham: But for now, good to see you back on your feet, lad.
(06/22 14:37:38) Jules Lavisham: Right, I think that was –
(06/22 14:37:46) Jules Lavisham: oh yes.
(06/22 14:37:48) From Dni_seeker 5: maybe you could host a Town Hall meeting about Rei’schu
(06/22 14:38:02) Jules Lavisham: It would be remiss of me not to mention what some in the community are calling the “Saturday Prophecies”.
(06/22 14:38:12) Jules Lavisham: I won’t be dwelling on them too much here,
(06/22 14:38:44) Jules Lavisham: I’m aware that bandying about the prospect of visions and predictions is a sure-fire way to get one’s credibility thrown into question from certain quarters.
(06/22 14:39:13) Jules Lavisham: But for those who have interest in these sorts of things, I understand they are documented on both the Forums and one or two explorer blogs.
(06/22 14:39:27) Jules Lavisham: We’ll do a quick wrapup of where to find those at the end.
(06/22 14:39:37) Jules Lavisham: Right!
(06/22 14:39:49) Jules Lavisham: I think that’s everything that’s been happening most recently.
(06/22 14:40:06) Jules Lavisham: Let’s get into what’s on the agenda.
(06/22 14:40:13) Jules Lavisham: And how you can get involved.
(06/22 14:40:19) Dni_seeker 5: I have something to say
(06/22 14:40:24) Carl Palmner: Jules–by the Saturday prophecies, you mean the visions of Echo and Madame Sophia?
(06/22 14:40:38) Jules Lavisham: That’s correct, Carl.
(06/22 14:40:44) Carl Palmner nods his head
(06/22 14:41:05) TikiBear raises his third eyebrow
(06/22 14:41:17) Keith Lord chuckles
(06/22 14:41:24) Robert Murry smirks
(06/22 14:41:31) Jules Lavisham: We’ll come to you in a bit, DS5
(06/22 14:41:36) Jules Lavisham: Don’t you worry
(06/22 14:41:37) ALotOf does… nothing.
(06/22 14:42:00) Ereshkigal still wonders what to think of all these so-called ‘prophets ‘
(06/22 14:42:09) To Jules Lavisham: when you want to hand over to me for the rei’schu/overflow stuff, just call me out
(06/22 14:42:20) Jules Lavisham: Right, first of all, we’ve got some new aras that we are gearing up to offer access to.
(06/22 14:42:44) Jules Lavisham: Firstly is the basement area of Chiso Preniv, where a nuber of those working on assorted restoration projects can be found hanging out.
(06/22 14:43:03) Jules Lavisham: Secondly we have Eder Naybree, whose restoration is being overseen by Cal.
(06/22 14:43:18) Calum Traveler: Kelsei’s helped too.
(06/22 14:43:31) Jules Lavisham: This is a garden age written during the Garden Binge period of D’ni history,
(06/22 14:43:31) [X] claps her hands
(06/22 14:43:35) Brigid grins eagerly.
(06/22 14:43:44) Jules Lavisham: split into two pieces by a flowing river.
(06/22 14:44:01) Jules Lavisham: It as been overgrown by a giant, semi-mushroom, semi-kidzu like tree species
(06/22 14:44:08) Jules Lavisham: that Briggs has helpfully named –
(06/22 14:44:15) Jules Lavisham squints at his notes
(06/22 14:44:24) Jules Lavisham: “Chubby Noodle Trees”.
(06/22 14:44:25) Calum Traveler stifles a snort and a chuckle… covering it as a cough.
(06/22 14:44:31) Carl Palmner starts to laugh
(06/22 14:44:33) Brigid laughs
(06/22 14:44:37) Calum Traveler: they are very chubby and noodle like
(06/22 14:44:45) Jules Lavisham: Uh, full marks for the descriptors there, Briggs, I have to say.
(06/22 14:44:46) [X]: Chubby noodle tree is what it shall forever be named
(06/22 14:44:54) Brigid: But do they make good soup?
(06/22 14:44:55) Calum Traveler: verily
(06/22 14:45:04) Brigid: Inquiring minds want to know!!!
(06/22 14:45:05) Calum Traveler: not especially,
(06/22 14:45:08) Calum Traveler: they’re very hearty roots.
(06/22 14:45:15) Jules Lavisham: And lastly we have Highgarden
(06/22 14:45:19) TikiBear: hardy
(06/22 14:45:33) Jules Lavisham: A small garden area of Fahets, the first Age written by Keith “Tweek” Lord.
(06/22 14:45:38) [X]: Heart of thee roots
(06/22 14:45:45) Carl Palmner: Keith is here today.
(06/22 14:45:52) Keith Lord: Hey I know that guy. He owes me $30.
(06/22 14:45:56) Calum Traveler starts to laugh
(06/22 14:45:58) Carl Palmner laughs
(06/22 14:45:58) Jules Lavisham snorts
(06/22 14:46:05) From Dni_seeker 5: PHEW he didn’t say VERTIGO that Age was FREAKY
(06/22 14:46:16) Jules Lavisham: It’s my understanding that Highgarden served as a resting area for The Third Path council
(06/22 14:46:25) Keith Lord nods
(06/22 14:46:34) Jules Lavisham: and has since been prepped for public release so it can be enjoyed by the greater explorer population
(06/22 14:46:56) Jules Lavisham: Now, we#re looking to open up the Chiso basement for public access hopefully sometime next month, touch wood.
(06/22 14:47:08) Jules Lavisham: As for Eder Naybree and Highgarden, well…
(06/22 14:47:22) Jules Lavisham: we’ll get to that.
(06/22 14:47:46) Jules Lavisham: Right, Cal, I think you had a couple of words about the Overflow station?
(06/22 14:47:58) Calum Traveler: right
(06/22 14:48:04) Calum Traveler hauls self to feet
(06/22 14:48:11) Calum Traveler: alright so,
(06/22 14:48:34) Calum Traveler: a few months back, on st. patricks day, i was checking the overflow station over after some concerns with the lake health
(06/22 14:48:36) Calum Traveler: paranoia on my bit,
(06/22 14:48:43) Calum Traveler: ya’ll probably might remember,
(06/22 14:48:48) [X]: A bit
(06/22 14:48:56) Calum Traveler: i found someone who wasnt supposed to be there, they were working on equipment
(06/22 14:49:04) Calum Traveler: they said they were undoing sabbotage
(06/22 14:49:14) Calum Traveler: naturally, i was, yknow, skeptical, but recent events have me less so
(06/22 14:49:31) Calum Traveler: that person- using a fake name of “Sami Lesgrandee”- was easily spooked.
(06/22 14:49:37) Calum Traveler: shoved me over and ran, havent seen her since,
(06/22 14:49:41) Calum Traveler: didnt have a KI on her either
(06/22 14:49:52) Calum Traveler: much to Kelsei’s surprise when she spotted the name on a hood imager a few weeks back
(06/22 14:50:04) Calum Traveler: you might’ve heard her asking for that KI# if anyone had it,
(06/22 14:50:10) Calum Traveler: well, she got it, reached out- but no response.
(06/22 14:50:30) Calum Traveler: after the incident where I hit my head, I put the whole facility into lockdown
(06/22 14:50:43) Calum Traveler: halted the opperation and such, made sure I knew everything was in order.
(06/22 14:50:56) Calum Traveler: two workers I’d hired for the station soon went missing after going on sick leave,
(06/22 14:51:07) Calum Traveler: i suspect they gave me fake names as well, given recent events.
(06/22 14:51:17) Calum Traveler: those two were spotted occasionally on Tenny’s hood’s clinic imager,
(06/22 14:51:24) Calum Traveler: skulking around
(06/22 14:51:34) Calum Traveler: and were noted as being there on the night that the clinic was sabbotaged,
(06/22 14:52:02) Calum Traveler: we’re fairly certain now that they’re involved in all of it, given that when the overflow station was sabbotaged again just recently, new KIs were caught on record,
(06/22 14:52:17) Calum Traveler: two of the names there were obvious scrambles of the previous two names,
(06/22 14:52:34) Calum Traveler: or, well, the original ones may have been scrambles of these ones
(06/22 14:52:36) Calum Traveler: it’s hard to tell,
(06/22 14:52:54) Calum Traveler: point is, these people were smart enough to wear wooden carved masks to hide their identities from cameras
(06/22 14:53:04) Calum Traveler: but they wore their KIs, and we got some names and #IDs,
(06/22 14:53:30) Calum Traveler: that’s, honestly, all I’ve got to say on the matter regarding that.
(06/22 14:53:46) Calum Traveler: we’re still trying to track down the girl, “Sami” for lack of a better name, to see if she can tell us anything
(06/22 14:54:06) Calum Traveler: i suspect if she’s still here in cavern, she’s not using that name, however.
(06/22 14:54:35) Calum Traveler: if anyone does see the active ID of “Sami Lesgrandee” it’s likely one of these other people using it to try to draw her out, I’d wager.
(06/22 14:55:03) Calum Traveler: ignore them, and don’t interact, but feel free to snap a KI Pic and forward it to Carl Palmner.
(06/22 14:55:22) Carl Palmner: They’ll need to know the names and KI#s.
(06/22 14:55:36) Jena: if she’s in trouble, would be foolish to use name
(06/22 14:55:39) Calum Traveler: similarly, the previous IDs of the other station workers, Fasyk Casing, and Tati Masser- are likely not in use any further,
(06/22 14:55:39) mthemaster (I’m on the surface, be back in a minute):
(06/22 14:55:45) Carl Palmner: I don’t have the list on me, but I sent it to Jules.
(06/22 14:55:52) Calum Traveler: we have more relevant KI#s and names,
(06/22 14:55:56) Calum Traveler: which Jules should have, yes,
(06/22 14:55:59) Calum Traveler smiles to Jules
(06/22 14:56:09) Calum Traveler bows aside for the moment
(06/22 14:56:10) Jules Lavisham: Ah, yes, thank you Cal. Let me –
(06/22 14:56:17) Jules Lavisham: ah, here we go.
(06/22 14:56:31) Jules Lavisham: Right, be ready with your note-taking, you lot.
(06/22 14:57:03) Jules Lavisham: We have Mita Staser, ID 11934356
(06/22 14:57:35) Jules Lavisham: Wait, no, thats wrong. Mita Staser is 11934130.
(06/22 14:57:47) Jules Lavisham: We have Case Kafsing, THAT one is 11934356.
(06/22 14:57:59) Calum Traveler: similar IDs, they must’ve been made near the same time as eachother,
(06/22 14:58:12) Jules Lavisham: We have Sanna Koskelainen, ID 11938528.
(06/22 14:58:29) Jules Lavisham: And lastly Tally, no second name, ID 11934822.
(06/22 14:58:45) Cpt.Jericho: would be Ho
(06/22 14:58:59) Dni_seeker 5: I actually have a funny story about Tally, actually.
(06/22 14:59:02) Carl Palmner: You forgot Marcus Johnson
(06/22 14:59:10) Jules Lavisham: In a slightly more magical world, Captain, certainly.
(06/22 14:59:23) Jules Lavisham: Ah, yes. Do you have his number, Carl?
(06/22 14:59:28) Cpt.Jericho: More magical than D’ni?
(06/22 14:59:32) Carl Palmner: I might. Let me check.
(06/22 14:59:42) Jules Lavisham: Right, while Carl is doing that,
(06/22 14:59:55) Calum Traveler: anyways, i think it goes without saying that these folks have clearly been escalating,
(06/22 14:59:56) Carl Palmner: I have it. Marcus Johnson is 11799065
(06/22 15:00:01) Jules Lavisham: we’re after some kind of visual ID, ideally.
(06/22 15:00:20) Jules Lavisham: But do not – on any account, do NOT – engage with them physically.
(06/22 15:00:27) Calum Traveler: yeah, visual IDs only,
(06/22 15:00:31) [X] is scribbling madly
(06/22 15:00:40) Jules Lavisham: If you see them in cavern, take a KI photo, and send it on to Carl.
(06/22 15:00:40) Dni_seeker 5: A few days ago, I was in Todelmer.
(06/22 15:00:56) Calum Traveler: go ahead, DS5,
(06/22 15:01:08) Jules Lavisham: Ok DS5, we’ve kept you waiting long enough.
(06/22 15:01:09) Dni_seeker 5: And I saw some movement in the room with the telescope controls.
(06/22 15:01:13) Jules Lavisham smiles
(06/22 15:01:22) Carl Palmner: Yes, I’m the one to send the KI photos too. I’ve agreed to be the go-to guy on that, to relieve the volunteer Restorers of some work.
(06/22 15:01:35) Dni_seeker 5: This is not the appropriate time to SMILE, Jules!
(06/22 15:01:38) Carl Palmner: It would help if you would include in the KI photo who it is and where it is.
(06/22 15:01:57) Dni_seeker 5: I saw some thug in there who was totally destroying the place!
(06/22 15:02:08) Jules Lavisham: Hm. That is indeed nothing to smile about.
(06/22 15:02:14) Tiernan Quinlan is a bit puzzled…
(06/22 15:02:17) Calum Traveler: as i said, escalating,
(06/22 15:02:21) Dni_seeker 5: And when I tried to stop him, he SHOVED ME OFF THE EDGE OF A CLIFF!
(06/22 15:02:36) Carl Palmner: Yes, DS5 discussed this with me previously. For those who don’t know, he is working on possibly restoring Todelmer.
(06/22 15:02:39) [X]: You ok?
(06/22 15:02:40) Calum Traveler grimaces
(06/22 15:02:47) Jules Lavisham: … that is a VERY worrying escalation.
(06/22 15:02:57) Dni_seeker 5: Thankfully, yes, because I had my Relto book on me.
(06/22 15:03:05) Calum Traveler: Todelmer, for a lot of reasons, is one we’re wary of given it’s previous Bahro influences, but we are looking into it,
(06/22 15:03:09) Carl Palmner: Yes, it’s the first known time that one of the troublemakers has attempted murder.
(06/22 15:03:19) [X]: Relto book to the rescue!
(06/22 15:03:20) Calum Traveler: just as Patrick has been working on Direbo, off and on.
(06/22 15:03:32) Dni_seeker 5: Well, I went back there, and the message “NOT YOURS” was spray-painted on a wall.
(06/22 15:03:34) [X]: Saved my potential groom once
(06/22 15:03:39) Ereshkigal: I need to Link out,guys! Thanks for the session; I’ll read the logs later!
(06/22 15:03:44) Calum Traveler: later eresh
(06/22 15:03:45) [X]: But thats another story
(06/22 15:03:49) Jules Lavisham: Take care Eresh
(06/22 15:03:51) Calum Traveler: yeah, its a worrying esacalation on the damages done
(06/22 15:03:52) Carl Palmner: DS5 got the KI number, though–it was Tally. He told me about this and we’ve included Tally’s name and KI# in our list. But you can see why we don’t want anyone engaging these people physically.
(06/22 15:04:10) Calum Traveler: there wasn’t a message left at the overflow station
(06/22 15:04:18) Calum Traveler: which leaves me with a couple of possibilities
(06/22 15:04:22) Calum Traveler: the message wasn’t meant for us
(06/22 15:04:28) Calum Traveler: or the lack of a message was the message.
(06/22 15:04:32) Jena: Bye
(06/22 15:04:45) Calum Traveler: in the first case, it’s likely these goons are also trying to track down “Sami”
(06/22 15:04:48) Calum Traveler: in the latter…
(06/22 15:04:49) Jena (I’m on the surface, be back in a minute):
(06/22 15:05:00) Calum Traveler: i can only assume the attempt was made to demoralize us.
(06/22 15:05:03) Calum Traveler: which it won’t.
(06/22 15:05:20) Jules Lavisham: Damn right it won’t.
(06/22 15:05:23) Calum Traveler: we’ve got a few ways to proceed with restoring the Overflow Station, but, we’ll get back to that.
(06/22 15:05:24) Carl Palmner: The combination of messages in both the clinic and Todelmer, plus the recent major sabotage, and the string of incidents I recently reported to Kelsei, all lead me to believe this is an organized group.
(06/22 15:05:28) Dni_seeker 5: That is why we don’t want to physically engage with these people. Because if the others are anything like Tally, we don’t want to find a dead body in Ae’gura.
(06/22 15:05:36) Dni_seeker 5: but we might.
(06/22 15:05:40) Carl Palmner nods his head
(06/22 15:05:48) Calum Traveler: it’s possible Benavud fell afoul of them,
(06/22 15:05:50) [X]: o.o
(06/22 15:05:55) Calum Traveler: i’ve had some folks message me and Kelsei about that
(06/22 15:05:59) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye.
(06/22 15:06:01) Calum Traveler nods at Cpt.Jericho
(06/22 15:06:04) Carl Palmner nods his head
(06/22 15:06:10) Jules Lavisham: So yes. Keep your distance for now. But if you can, grab snaps and send to Carl.
(06/22 15:06:20) Jules Lavisham: It WILL make a difference.
(06/22 15:06:25) Carl Palmner: Yep. I’m going to post the names and KI#s on the forum as well.
(06/22 15:06:46) Jules Lavisham: Right, last thing before we get to some voting,
(06/22 15:06:57) Carl Palmner: Report these people immediately, and the restoration folks can intervene with them.
(06/22 15:07:11) Jules Lavisham: A number of you have been showing Ben around your Journey ages in the hope of blowing a few cobwebs out of his memory
(06/22 15:07:21) [X]: Aye!
(06/22 15:07:23) Jules Lavisham: and from what we’ve been hearing it’s helping him in a big way.
(06/22 15:07:31) ALotOf: NoMore told me.
(06/22 15:07:43) Jules Lavisham: It’s of priority importance that he remembers who he is,
(06/22 15:07:52) Cpt.Jericho just tried to be nice
(06/22 15:08:01) Jules Lavisham: especially as the prospect of him being a Book-World is still very much yet to be ruled out for sure right now.
(06/22 15:08:08) Carl Palmner: Yes, actually, Jules, may I make a special mention there?
(06/22 15:08:13) Jules Lavisham: Go ahead, Carl.
(06/22 15:08:22) Carl Palmner: I actually spoke with Ben for the second time a few days ago.
(06/22 15:08:36) Carl Palmner: He told me he’s very grateful to explorers Cpt. Jericho, NoMore and Sleeper Jan.
(06/22 15:08:46) [X] cheers
(06/22 15:08:49) Carl Palmner: Just wanted to give them a quick shout-out. Those were the ones who helped him this last week.
(06/22 15:08:55) Carl Palmner: That’s all. Go ahead, Jules 🙂
(06/22 15:08:57) Jules Lavisham: Ah, wonderful stuff
(06/22 15:09:23) Jules Lavisham: Yeah, so if you do see him around and you’ve got a moment, feel free to do likewise
(06/22 15:09:29) Calum Traveler checks time…
(06/22 15:09:35) Jules Lavisham: Right!
(06/22 15:09:42) Calum Traveler: looks like we’re running a bit behind with that interuption earlier,
(06/22 15:09:49) Calum Traveler: let’s get to the voiting I think?
(06/22 15:09:54) Jules Lavisham: I reckon so!
(06/22 15:10:14) Jules Lavisham: So earlier I mentioned there would be a chance for explorers to have a say in certain directions that the restoration is looking to take
(06/22 15:10:27) ALotOf: first townhall voting
(06/22 15:10:37) Carl Palmner is excited to have an impact here.
(06/22 15:10:40) [X]: Here we go!
(06/22 15:10:48) Jules Lavisham: So what we’re going to do now is put forward some options for you, and you’ll be able to pick the one we proceed with
(06/22 15:10:57) Thumbs up from Tiernan Quinlan
(06/22 15:10:57) Cpt.Jericho: Carl, us being here has an impact
(06/22 15:11:16) Jules Lavisham: Reckon the easier way we can do this if when the time comes you PM your choice to me, I tally them up,
(06/22 15:11:16) [X]: And helps you with your impact 🙂
(06/22 15:11:23) Jules Lavisham: and we move forward with the majority decision.
(06/22 15:11:38) Jules Lavisham: Unless Carl, Cal, Tenny, any of you fancy the job?
(06/22 15:11:54) [X]: Pm our votes to jules?
(06/22 15:11:58) [X]: K
(06/22 15:12:05) Carl Palmner: Yup. PM votes to Jules.
(06/22 15:12:10) Calum Traveler: votes to jules
(06/22 15:12:13) Jules Lavisham: Right, yup, PM them to me.
(06/22 15:12:22) [X]: jules
(06/22 15:12:31) Jules Lavisham: Ok! We’ve got three of them for you tonight.
(06/22 15:12:38) Calum Traveler: which topic first, jules? some of these have less explanations than others,
(06/22 15:12:52) Jules Lavisham: Get the easy ones out of the way first, Cal?
(06/22 15:12:56) Calum Traveler: yeah,
(06/22 15:13:08) Jules Lavisham: Alrighty.
(06/22 15:13:24) Jules Lavisham: First one concerns the two ages I mentioned before, Eder Naybree and Highgarden.
(06/22 15:13:42) Jules Lavisham: Now, both of these places have some last minute work that needs to be taken care of before they can be opened up to explorers.
(06/22 15:14:00) Jules Lavisham: In respect of Eder Naybree,
(06/22 15:14:07) Calum Traveler: The Tree.
(06/22 15:14:09) Calum Traveler: and the Cliffs.
(06/22 15:14:18) Jules Lavisham: Yes, absolutely.
(06/22 15:14:19) Calum Traveler: it’s, uh… a bit of a structural concern.
(06/22 15:14:34) Jules Lavisham: Mmm.
(06/22 15:14:35) Calum Traveler: im fairly certain its stable, but there’s some extra checks folks are asking over,
(06/22 15:14:36) [X]: i live dangerously
(06/22 15:14:55) Jules Lavisham: That age’s foliage is not to be tusselled with lightly.
(06/22 15:15:05) Calum Traveler: not without some motor enhanced clippers
(06/22 15:15:18) [X]: >.o go on
(06/22 15:15:31) Cpt.Jericho: I have a flamethrower if you want…
(06/22 15:15:33) Jules Lavisham: Now, as for Highgarden…
(06/22 15:15:45) Jules Lavisham: The stability is comparitively solid as a rock.
(06/22 15:16:07) Keith Lord nods
(06/22 15:16:10) Jules Lavisham: However, it’s seen a significant reduction in its butterfly population
(06/22 15:16:34) Dni_seeker 5 sniffles… he likes butterflies…
(06/22 15:16:44) Jules Lavisham: And – if I’ve got this right, Keith – they’re showing signs of an infection of sorts on their wings?
(06/22 15:17:01) Keith Lord: That is correct
(06/22 15:17:10) Jules Lavisham nods
(06/22 15:17:17) Keith Lord: Crimson blemishes
(06/22 15:17:22) Calum Traveler shudders
(06/22 15:17:34) Jules Lavisham: So the decision has been take to round up the remaining butterfly population and contain them before granting explorers access en-masse.
(06/22 15:17:52) Jules Lavisham: Right now, we have the manpower to sort out one of these two issues before tackling the other.
(06/22 15:17:58) Jules Lavisham: So our question to you is this:
(06/22 15:18:14) Jules Lavisham: which age do we deal with, and subsequently release, first?
(06/22 15:18:24) Jules Lavisham: Option A: Eder Naybree
(06/22 15:18:32) Jules Lavisham: or Option B: Highgarden
(06/22 15:18:46) Jules Lavisham: Let’s have your votes, folks.
(06/22 15:18:49) Carl Palmner: As far as the Ages themselves, I’ve visited both. Highgarden is, IMHO, prettier, but Naybree has more secrets to discover.
(06/22 15:19:01) From Malaclypse in D’ni-Ae’gura: Evenin’ all 🙂
(06/22 15:19:09) From Malaclypse in D’ni-Ae’gura: Public Service Spam: Sunday from 12:30 KI time, Radio Free D’ni will present Girls!
(06/22 15:19:14) Carl Palmner: They are very similar, though–both garden Ages.
(06/22 15:19:16) From thor-ham in Great Tree’s(3) Hood: Shorah Mal! 🙂
(06/22 15:19:30) Calum Traveler: if Direbo had made the security cut, then we could’ve called this the Garden Quarter.
(06/22 15:19:31) Calum Traveler: alas…
(06/22 15:19:42) Keith Lord: Indeed
(06/22 15:20:46) ALotOf: and will be written in the history books: ‘the second garden era’…
(06/22 15:20:55) Calum Traveler: that reminds me, Keith, Kelsei was meaning to ask where you found the Garden structures,
(06/22 15:21:01) Calum Traveler: were those found or hand crafted?
(06/22 15:21:02) Murry: Maybe next quarter
(06/22 15:21:20) Jules Lavisham: Right, last 30 or so seconds
(06/22 15:21:36) TikiBear imagines wrought iron putti
(06/22 15:21:45) Mystlander starts to laugh
(06/22 15:22:10) Jules Lavisham: Right, that’s the votes in!
(06/22 15:22:10) Carl Palmner: Do we have a winner?
(06/22 15:22:12) Calum Traveler hums the Jeopardy theme
(06/22 15:22:20) Jules Lavisham quickly tabulates
(06/22 15:22:27) Jules Lavisham: And the winner is…
(06/22 15:22:32) Keith Lord: Which structures? The statues were provided as a gift from a D’ni artisan we discovered trapped on an Age many years back now. The lamps and what not were modelled after those of Kemo.
(06/22 15:22:35) Jules Lavisham waggles his eyebrows
(06/22 15:22:40) Calum Traveler: ah, the latter,
(06/22 15:22:43) Jules Lavisham: Eder Naybree!
(06/22 15:22:44) Calum Traveler: neat!
(06/22 15:22:46) Calum Traveler: o-o
(06/22 15:22:48) [X] cheers
(06/22 15:22:50) Calum Traveler: well then,
(06/22 15:22:52) Isa =^.^= claps her hands
(06/22 15:22:55) Keith Lord cheers
(06/22 15:22:57) Calum Traveler: i guess ill have to redouble those cliff surveys…
(06/22 15:23:00) Carl Palmner: So, to clarify, this means we will get Eder Naybree first, and Highgarden a little later?
(06/22 15:23:01) IwonK claps her hands
(06/22 15:23:07) Jules Lavisham: That’s correct
(06/22 15:23:10) Carl Palmner nods his head
(06/22 15:23:12) Tiernan Quinlan claps his hands
(06/22 15:23:19) thor-ham claps his hands
(06/22 15:23:22) [X]: sounds wonderful
(06/22 15:23:24) Carl Palmner: Just want to state again that both of them are really awesome places.
(06/22 15:23:24) Brigid cheers
(06/22 15:23:27) To Jules Lavisham: overflow next?
(06/22 15:23:30) Murry: We still win both
(06/22 15:23:36) From Jules Lavisham: Go for it
(06/22 15:23:36) ALotOf: tree gardening and cliff painting first 🙂
(06/22 15:23:37) Isa =^.^=: 🙂
(06/22 15:23:39) Calum Traveler: alright folks
(06/22 15:23:40) Carl Palmner: I’m looking forward to both releases 🙂
(06/22 15:23:41) From Jules Lavisham: You want to do it?
(06/22 15:23:45) Calum Traveler: our next vote is on the Overflow Station
(06/22 15:23:55) Calum Traveler: as i said, we’ve got two methods of proceeding with this
(06/22 15:24:03) Calum Traveler: Option A:
(06/22 15:24:05) Keith Lord: Yes, I’ve always been especially fond of Kemo, so thought mirroring some of those elements would be nice for a garden area. Of course later on we got Delin and Tsogahl as well.
(06/22 15:24:09) [X]: another vote?
(06/22 15:24:17) Calum Traveler: More Security- Slower Restoration.
(06/22 15:24:29) Calum Traveler: We take it slow and steady and make sure nobody else gets in to damage the equipment
(06/22 15:24:34) Calum Traveler: only verified personelle only,
(06/22 15:24:41) Calum Traveler: it’ll be slower, as fewer people are working on it
(06/22 15:24:52) Calum Traveler: possibly stretching out its inevitable public release by several months, if not a year,
(06/22 15:24:55) TikiBear: As long as their are deadly lasers, I’m in.
(06/22 15:25:04) Calum Traveler: Option B: less security, faster restoration
(06/22 15:25:14) [X]: hm
(06/22 15:25:14) From Carl Palmner: Calum–I will vote how you want me to on this one. Which should I vote?
(06/22 15:25:17) [X]: are we voting?
(06/22 15:25:24) Calum Traveler: we throw caution to the wind, and get the place as redy as we can as rapidly as possible
(06/22 15:25:29) To Carl Palmner: go with how you want
(06/22 15:25:31) Brigid: If we take option B, what are the odds of losing the whole thing?
(06/22 15:25:33) Murry: how fast?
(06/22 15:25:34) From Carl Palmner: ok
(06/22 15:25:38) thor-ham wants lasers on fish
(06/22 15:25:38) Calum Traveler: option B is…
(06/22 15:25:39) LividLiquid: If we pick option B, would work effectively stop after, or would we then slowly work up to what the results of option A would be?
(06/22 15:25:58) Calum Traveler: it’ll be me pushing most of my project resources onto it
(06/22 15:26:06) Brigid: Much easier to smash than fix things.
(06/22 15:26:12) Calum Traveler: other areas, such as the Cathedral Island, or Pod 12, may take longer to complete,
(06/22 15:26:23) Calum Traveler: essentially on this one,
(06/22 15:26:23) Carl Palmner: Option A will get the area sooner, but there might be more sabotage attempts so not everything may be working. Option B means it will take more time but probably more of it will function.
(06/22 15:26:36) Calum Traveler: have it backwards there from what i listed, carl
(06/22 15:26:38) Calum Traveler: but yes, basically,
(06/22 15:26:40) Isa =^.^=: oh I had that backwards?
(06/22 15:26:47) Isa =^.^=: A is slow and B is fast?
(06/22 15:26:50) Carl Palmner: Sorry I think I flipped that.
(06/22 15:26:56) Calum Traveler: Option A: Slower Restoration. Option B: Faster restoration
(06/22 15:27:02) Isa =^.^=: thx
(06/22 15:27:03) Carl Palmner: A is slow and secure, B is fast and risky.
(06/22 15:27:05) Carl Palmner: Sorry.
(06/22 15:27:10) From [X]: which is best for you?
(06/22 15:27:18) To [X]: vote how your heart contends
(06/22 15:27:25) Brigid: If we pick A, does that mean Cathedral is moved up in the schedule?
(06/22 15:27:33) Calum Traveler: it means you’ll see it sooner, yes
(06/22 15:27:49) Calum Traveler: all my work will get done eventually, it’s just a matter of priority order
(06/22 15:27:56) Brigid nods
(06/22 15:28:19) Calum Traveler: if there’s no other questions on that…?
(06/22 15:28:21) From [X]: thank you. dont want you to feel pressured tho
(06/22 15:28:23) Calum Traveler: are we ready to vote?
(06/22 15:28:23) LividLiquid: Not sure if I missed the answer to my question.
(06/22 15:28:47) Jules Lavisham: I’ve been getting them sent my way, Cal
(06/22 15:28:52) Jules Lavisham: Anyone else wanting to vote?
(06/22 15:28:57) Calum Traveler: LividLiquid: it’s a matter of priority shuffle for me,
(06/22 15:29:01) LividLiquid: Again, if we pick option B, will the work on the age stop, or will we eventually get the results of option A, but far more slowly over time?
(06/22 15:29:01) Carl Palmner: Livid, if you pick option B, we get Overlay sooner but there might still be some damage to it.
(06/22 15:29:09) Calum Traveler: one thing gets done sooner than later,
(06/22 15:29:17) Jules Lavisham: Ok, 30 more seconds or so
(06/22 15:29:28) Jules Lavisham hums the Countdown theme
(06/22 15:29:31) LividLiquid: I don’t think I’m being clear.
(06/22 15:29:53) Calum Traveler: sorry, no work wont be stopped completely on other projects
(06/22 15:29:54) Carl Palmner: Hold on Jules
(06/22 15:30:05) Calum Traveler: it’ll just be reshuffled around
(06/22 15:30:06) LividLiquid: Alright, nevermind. I don’t want to hold up the vote with my confusion.
(06/22 15:30:14) Carl Palmner: I think what Livid is asking is whether or not any damage to Overflow will eventually be fixed.
(06/22 15:30:23) LividLiquid: Yes.
(06/22 15:30:26) Calum Traveler: any damage will eventually be fixed
(06/22 15:30:30) Carl Palmner: Ok.
(06/22 15:30:32) [X]: i’m not sure that matters to us but will it move smoothly for your purposes?
(06/22 15:30:33) Calum Traveler: it just may happen after release
(06/22 15:30:36) LividLiquid: Alright. That changes things considerably. Thank you.
(06/22 15:30:55) [X]: …storyline and the such
(06/22 15:30:59) Calum Traveler: X, this is literally just a matter of priority arrangement for me,
(06/22 15:31:05) Jules Lavisham: Right, that’s voting for this one closed!
(06/22 15:31:08) Calum Traveler: ive got a lot of projects on my plate,
(06/22 15:31:12) [X]: 🙂 k
(06/22 15:31:15) Calum Traveler: i need to direct it at something
(06/22 15:31:23) Carl Palmner: [X], I think it’s safe to say that our vote here will affect not only the state and time of the Age, but also the events connected to it 😉
(06/22 15:31:26) From Jules Lavisham: Overwhelming support for More Security.
(06/22 15:31:32) To Jules Lavisham: awesome
(06/22 15:31:32) From Jules Lavisham: Sensible bunch ^^
(06/22 15:31:45) [X]: 🙂 ok
(06/22 15:31:49) Dni_seeker 5: technically it’s still the same Age that we’re in, just a different area
(06/22 15:31:51) Calum Traveler looks to Jules,
(06/22 15:31:57) Calum Traveler: yes, Overflow Station is here in the Cavern, somewhere. (06/22 15:32:03) Jules Lavisham: Alrighty, we have them in!
(06/22 15:32:05) Carl Palmner: You’re right, of course, DS5 🙂
(06/22 15:32:12) Jules Lavisham: And you have gone for…
(06/22 15:32:21) Jules Lavisham: a slower, more secure release. (06/22 15:32:25) Carl Palmner nods his head
(06/22 15:32:27) TikiBear rolls drum down stairs
(06/22 15:32:28) Calum Traveler nods
(06/22 15:32:31) Dni_seeker 5: WHEW!
(06/22 15:32:31) LividLiquid: Wait. I didn’t see any votes. Was I supposed to send it via PM to somebody?
(06/22 15:32:33) Carl Palmner: I got one of my votes, and lost the other.
(06/22 15:32:38) Calum Traveler: PM to Jules for votes,
(06/22 15:32:49) Carl Palmner: Livid–PM Jules with votes.
(06/22 15:32:50) LividLiquid: Alright. Thank you.
(06/22 15:32:54) ALotOf: I see it already coming overflow station one day so good sabotaged that we see ferry terminal water flooding the peer and we can wade in water there…
(06/22 15:33:08) To Jules Lavisham: and then… rei’schu’s the last one?
(06/22 15:33:19) [X]: so we will see the more stable garden age first?
(06/22 15:33:20) To Jules Lavisham: or was it something else?
(06/22 15:33:25) Carl Palmner: One more vote, I think?
(06/22 15:33:38) From Jules Lavisham: Yup, last one on Rei’schu
(06/22 15:33:40) Carl Palmner: Both garden ages are stable. We’ll get Naybree first.
(06/22 15:33:45) Calum Traveler: speaking of Naybree,
(06/22 15:33:46) Jules Lavisham: Yes, one more.
(06/22 15:33:49) Carl Palmner: It will be stable by release.
(06/22 15:33:51) Calum Traveler: some of you may be in the loop on this,
(06/22 15:34:00) Calum Traveler: the Age was once a home to a survivor of the Fall of D’ni
(06/22 15:34:08) Dni_seeker 5: who?
(06/22 15:34:14) Calum Traveler: that survivor’s family had an Age Book, known as Rei’schu, under their guardianship,
(06/22 15:34:24) Dni_seeker 5: oh, right
(06/22 15:34:31) [X]: bless you
(06/22 15:34:34) Carl Palmner: Ok, last vote, last vote!
(06/22 15:34:39) Calum Traveler: yes, it does sound like a sneeze
(06/22 15:34:45) Carl Palmner: I bet it’s on who is the handsomest explorer. I vote me. (06/22 15:34:52) Calum Traveler: there’s a reason our internal name for it is “Exten-col,” (06/22 15:34:57) Calum Traveler: the literal translation of the name
(06/22 15:34:57) Keith Lord: I also vote Carl
(06/22 15:35:06) Carl Palmner grins
(06/22 15:35:11) [X] needs to get a closer look at carl
(06/22 15:35:19) Calum Traveler: Extension, Collection, Exten-col, Rei’schu, (06/22 15:35:21) Calum Traveler: anyways, the Age is, (06/22 15:35:22) Calum Traveler: well, (06/22 15:35:29) Calum Traveler: there’s no easy way to say it, but the age is Inhabited. (06/22 15:35:44) ALotOf thinks of Catcha-col and laughs… (06/22 15:35:45) Murry: GASPS (06/22 15:35:47) Cpt.Jericho: Mayn ages are (06/22 15:35:48) Calum Traveler: after a, ah, recent incident where I put myself into an altered state, I used the book,
(06/22 15:35:54) Cpt.Jericho: *many
(06/22 15:35:59) Calum Traveler: and, well, i didnt wear a maintainer suit, so i caught a cold,
(06/22 15:36:04) Calum Traveler: stayed with the locals for a while,
(06/22 15:36:14) Dni_seeker 5: that’s the Age you went to when you were under the crystals’ spell
(06/22 15:36:17) Brigid: Oh dear!
(06/22 15:36:27) Calum Traveler: to TL;DR it, they’re open to some form of cultural exchange,
(06/22 15:36:38) Carl Palmner: Oooo
(06/22 15:36:41) thor-ham needs to give Calum less moonshine
(06/22 15:36:46) Calum Traveler: moons…
(06/22 15:36:52) Calum Traveler: oh boy, dont get me started on those moons.
(06/22 15:36:56) Calum Traveler: they look like cat’s eyes.
(06/22 15:37:10) Robert Murry: Crystals?
(06/22 15:37:19) Calum Traveler: yes and no
(06/22 15:37:28) Mystlander needs a new head lamp… wonders if crystals willl work?
(06/22 15:37:30) Calum Traveler: The age suffered a calamity at some point in its history
(06/22 15:37:40) Calum Traveler: the planet is *visibly* stitched together with massive crystal growths
(06/22 15:37:48) Calum Traveler: the moons are in a similar state.
(06/22 15:38:02) From Dni_seeker 5: cat’s eyes… OH MY GOSH I JUST FIGURED OUT WHAT YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT WITH THE CAT THAT LOST ITS NAME!
(06/22 15:38:10) Calum Traveler: they have a Goddess of some form, that was said to have held the planets together,
(06/22 15:38:21) Calum Traveler: whether she’s a real deity, or not,
(06/22 15:38:23) Calum Traveler: doesnt matter,
(06/22 15:38:28) Calum Traveler: there IS something living in those crystals
(06/22 15:38:30) Calum Traveler: many somethings
(06/22 15:38:38) Brigid: Maintainer suits all around then. We don’t need something else on top of the recent unpleasantness on the Surface.
(06/22 15:38:40) Calum Traveler: the people use them sort of like how Serenia has its memory globes,
(06/22 15:38:47) Carl Palmner: Also, some of the priestesses there are really pretty. Uh…I didn’t notice thought, because I’m engaged…
(06/22 15:38:52) TikiBear makes note to chat with Goddess
(06/22 15:39:01) Carl Palmner: *though
(06/22 15:39:01) Calum Traveler: yes, they are quite pretty, and also nearly identical
(06/22 15:39:07) Calum Traveler: there’s something weird going on there, genetics wise,
(06/22 15:39:15) Calum Traveler: they all look like the goddess herself, too,
(06/22 15:39:28) LividLiquid: Interesting…
(06/22 15:39:30) Calum Traveler: there’s a whole bunch of religious stuff in there i dont want to get into right now
(06/22 15:39:32) Calum Traveler: the main point is
(06/22 15:39:33) Jules Lavisham: Damn near had to sedate Ed at one point
(06/22 15:39:35) Robert Murry: I would be very interested in analyzing those crytals.
(06/22 15:39:42) Calum Traveler: we have one major concern over the age,
(06/22 15:39:47) Calum Traveler: and that’s its megafauna type wildlife
(06/22 15:39:55) Mystlander thinks cloning may be involved
(06/22 15:39:58) Calum Traveler: when i say their cats are big, i mean…
(06/22 15:40:03) [X]: critters ya say?
(06/22 15:40:09) Calum Traveler: i literally saw a mountain lion the size of a giraffe- before you even get to the neck
(06/22 15:40:11) Carl Palmner cringes
(06/22 15:40:13) TikiBear: Were you riding them, Calum?
(06/22 15:40:16) Calum Traveler: no,
(06/22 15:40:21) Carl Palmner: Yeah…I’m definitely not going back without a Maintainer Suit…
(06/22 15:40:24) Calum Traveler: i saw a huntress kill one, when it tried attacking a village.
(06/22 15:40:25) Jules Lavisham: Got a note in my journal saying “Absolute Stompy Units”, Cal.
(06/22 15:40:30) Cpt.Jericho: If the predators ar big, the prey is even bigger!
(06/22 15:40:32) Calum Traveler: it was… Dark Souls Boss Type fighting.
(06/22 15:40:43) Cpt.Jericho: Giant steaks!!
(06/22 15:41:05) Calum Traveler: needless to say, it was not something we’re keen on letting the general explorer population get to given, well.
(06/22 15:41:07) Brigid: Note to self, bring down a few long spears on my next trip to the Survace.
(06/22 15:41:09) Calum Traveler shudders
(06/22 15:41:13) [X]: only if you can take them down and toss on the barbie
(06/22 15:41:18) Calum Traveler mumbles something about blood…
(06/22 15:41:18) TikiBear: Have the inhabitants discovered barbeque?
(06/22 15:41:25) Carl Palmner: If this is going to be a vote on whether to release the Age, I think that’s a safety issue. We can’t have massive amounts of explorers going there. Someone will get kiled.
(06/22 15:41:26) Calum Traveler: oh, yes, they eat what they kill, for sure,
(06/22 15:41:42) Calum Traveler: much like Gahreesen has its murder wildlife and nobody goes into the jungle, Carl,
(06/22 15:41:51) Carl Palmner: Hmmm.
(06/22 15:42:03) Carl Palmner shuts up but looks uncomfortable.
(06/22 15:42:03) Calum Traveler: so, while the people of the age are interested in holding some form of cultural exchange-
(06/22 15:42:04) Brigid: Unleashing this entire horde of weirdos on an inhabited age? Yeah, bad idea.
(06/22 15:42:13) Calum Traveler: certain individuals are definitely going to come visit eventually,
(06/22 15:42:26) Calum Traveler: the nature of our relationship going forwards with this age heavily depends on us
(06/22 15:42:35) Calum Traveler: what do *we* want out of this relationship and such
(06/22 15:42:36) Mystlander is bringing down her 500 pound smoker from the ranch on the surface!
(06/22 15:42:41) Calum Traveler: we’ll likely have many votes on this in the future
(06/22 15:42:46) Calum Traveler: but for now we’ll start simply,
(06/22 15:43:07) Calum Traveler: Option A: Do we do the bare minimum of cultural contact, and try to prevent too much intermingling for everyones safeety
(06/22 15:43:12) [X] is waiting…
(06/22 15:43:20) Calum Traveler: or B: do we go full on cultural exchange and send ambassadors over?
(06/22 15:43:33) Calum Traveler: vote.
(06/22 15:43:34) Murry: We need to make a small delegation to converse with them before we open the the age.
(06/22 15:43:36) LividLiquid: Ah. The Prime Directive conundrum.
(06/22 15:43:38) Calum Traveler: (Message jules)
(06/22 15:43:40) Carl Palmner: Ah, ok. Ambassadors, I could get behind. That’s a little different than a full public release.
(06/22 15:43:41) Brigid: define bare minimum?
(06/22 15:43:48) Murry looks at Robert Murry.
(06/22 15:43:57) Carl Palmner: Calum, if we send ambassadors, can we ensure their safety?
(06/22 15:43:59) Calum Traveler: bare minimum: a few select areas are secured, and people can visit those,
(06/22 15:44:07) Calum Traveler: but no more
(06/22 15:44:28) Calum Traveler: Carl, that’s… a hard question to answer
(06/22 15:44:37) Calum Traveler: that’s really something we’d have to talk with the locals about…
(06/22 15:44:42) Calum Traveler: given Runa’mei though…
(06/22 15:44:46) Calum Traveler trails off for a moment…
(06/22 15:44:50) Carl Palmner: I’m nervous about this. I didn’t feel safe when I was there, except in the actual village where you were.
(06/22 15:45:01) Carl Palmner: I suppose if they wear Maintainer Suits and have training…
(06/22 15:45:06) Calum Traveler: she’d probably be excited about getting to talk with the ambassadors
(06/22 15:45:13) Calum Traveler: she was certainly prodding me for questions about things…
(06/22 15:45:18) Carl Palmner broods.
(06/22 15:45:24) Calum Traveler: that girl took down a massive cat on her own
(06/22 15:45:28) Jules Lavisham: Well, I for one thoroughly enjoyed my time with them
(06/22 15:45:31) Carl Palmner: As long as the ambassadors can be kept safe.
(06/22 15:45:33) Calum Traveler: if anyone could keep the ambassadors safe, it’d be her.
(06/22 15:45:45) Carl Palmner: Well…all right, then.
(06/22 15:45:56) Keith Lord: Maybe we could get Sharper to be an ambassador.
(06/22 15:46:03) Robert Murry: I have experience with encountering unknown tribes. I would volunteer for this effort.
(06/22 15:46:05) Calum Traveler massages at bridge of nose, displacing glasses, with a slight flash of purple…
(06/22 15:46:14) Carl Palmner: I’ll abstain from this vote. I think it’s a great idea but I worry, too.
(06/22 15:46:19) Brigid: Dear, Maker, NO!
(06/22 15:46:24) Calum Traveler: trust me, carl, i have my reservations
(06/22 15:46:28) Jules Lavisham: Right, any more undecideds?
(06/22 15:46:30) Carl Palmner: I want to vote yes, but I need to think about it some more. So no vote from me at all this time.
(06/22 15:46:31) Brigid: Anyone but Sharper!
(06/22 15:46:36) Calum Traveler: i just saw ONE massive mega fauna
(06/22 15:46:43) Calum Traveler: i dont want to know if there’s anything bigger
(06/22 15:46:59) Murry: Okay, what are we voting on here?
(06/22 15:47:17) Calum Traveler: A: A few limited areas, probably no face to face contact
(06/22 15:47:20) Brigid: Gotta run. Will check the logs for the results later.
(06/22 15:47:24) Cpt.Jericho: Cal, if that’s the top predator then the prey is at least four times bigger
(06/22 15:47:26) TikiBear: Sending a basket of fruit vs. sending ambassadors
(06/22 15:47:27) Calum Traveler: B: ambassadorship
(06/22 15:48:01) Jules Lavisham: Right, closing, closing…
(06/22 15:48:16) Jules Lavisham: Closed!
(06/22 15:48:17) Mystlander raises hand to volunteer as an ambassador
(06/22 15:48:37) Calum Traveler waits for Jules to tally it up…
(06/22 15:48:39) From Jules Lavisham: Cultural exchange is a GO
(06/22 15:48:45) From Jules Lavisham: Wantto announce?
(06/22 15:48:50) To Jules Lavisham: ill leave it to you
(06/22 15:48:55) Calum Traveler fidgits slightly…
(06/22 15:49:05) Jules Lavisham: Alright, and the votes are in…
(06/22 15:49:11) Jules Lavisham: …
(06/22 15:49:12) Murry: me looks at Robert and gives him a questioning look.
(06/22 15:49:13) [X] wonders why she’s nervous
(06/22 15:49:29) Jules Lavisham: we are on for a cultural exchange!
(06/22 15:49:35) Isa =^.^= claps her hands
(06/22 15:49:38) Carl Palmner sighs
(06/22 15:49:39) TikiBear: Yay!
(06/22 15:49:40) Tiernan Quinlan claps his hands
(06/22 15:49:41) Calum Traveler looks half relieved, half stunned, half nervous
(06/22 15:49:44) Mystlander cheers
(06/22 15:49:44) Robert Murry claps his hands
(06/22 15:49:46) Calum Traveler: well then,
(06/22 15:49:49) Carl Palmner: Ok. Well, if that’s what we’re doing…I volunteer.
(06/22 15:49:50) Jules Lavisham: Looks like I’m going to need to be stocking up on that nice tea they went for.
(06/22 15:49:52) Robert Murry claps his hands
(06/22 15:49:58) Carl Palmner: Someone needs to be there who’s going to put safety first.
(06/22 15:50:00) Calum Traveler: i guess I have my answer to give to the Pirestesses,
(06/22 15:50:05) Tiernan Quinlan chuckles.
(06/22 15:50:11) Robert Murry: I volunteer to be on the team.
(06/22 15:50:12) Carl Palmner: Yahvo help me–that place scares me, but that’s exactly why I should be there.
(06/22 15:50:13) Jules Lavisham: That’s going to keep my supplier in Brighton busy.
(06/22 15:50:14) Isa =^.^=: Mystlander would be very good for that!
(06/22 15:50:16) Dni_seeker 5 clears his throat
(06/22 15:50:21) Calum Traveler: yes, DS5?
(06/22 15:50:30) ALotOf: so it’s gonna have to put together a group of assassi… ambassadors…
(06/22 15:50:39) Dni_seeker 5: okay, I actually have nothing to say
(06/22 15:50:43) Calum Traveler: alright
(06/22 15:50:44) Carl Palmner: So to summarize the votes:
(06/22 15:50:46) [X]: O.O
(06/22 15:50:46) Tiernan Quinlan: As always, I’m available as group medic.
(06/22 15:51:00) Dni_seeker 5: wait, were you about to say ASSASSINS?
(06/22 15:51:03) Carl Palmner: The explorers voted to release Naybree first, to go slow and secure with the Overflow, and to send ambassadors to Rei’Schu.
(06/22 15:51:10) Mystlander pokes DS5
(06/22 15:51:15) [X]: bless you
(06/22 15:51:25) Mystlander waves hello
(06/22 15:51:30) Calum Traveler: maybe we oughta just call it Exten-col
(06/22 15:51:31) TikiBear: Isaid “basket of fruit”
(06/22 15:51:35) Calum Traveler: less sneeze confusion
(06/22 15:51:39) thor-ham sneezes
(06/22 15:51:43) Jules Lavisham: Right!
(06/22 15:51:49) Carl Palmner shakes his head
(06/22 15:51:52) Jules Lavisham: And that’s the last of of the voting!
(06/22 15:51:57) Isa =^.^= claps her hands
(06/22 15:51:59) Carl Palmner: I still think the Rei’Schu expedition is a risky idea.
(06/22 15:52:02) Mystlander claps her hands
(06/22 15:52:03) [X]: gonna have to head out. i look forward to the new adventures!
(06/22 15:52:07) Calum Traveler: take care, X,
(06/22 15:52:07) Isa =^.^=: see you X
(06/22 15:52:08) Carl Palmner: Maybe I should have voted against it. Too late now.
(06/22 15:52:12) TikiBear: No risk = no reward
(06/22 15:52:22) Calum Traveler: we’ll take it safely as we do everything, carl,
(06/22 15:52:26) Thumbs up from Mystlander
(06/22 15:52:31) Calum Traveler: maybe not quite overflow station safely,
(06/22 15:52:32) Calum Traveler: but
(06/22 15:52:34) Carl Palmner frowns, but nods.
(06/22 15:52:37) From Mystlander in Great Tree’s(3) Hood: I’m with you TikiBear!
(06/22 15:52:38) Calum Traveler: that feels like an extenuating circumstance
(06/22 15:52:41) Calum Traveler: we’ll see
(06/22 15:52:48) Jules Lavisham: Exciting times, nontheless.
(06/22 15:52:50) Calum Traveler: on that note, boy am i exhausted, and hungry.
(06/22 15:52:52) From [X]: sounds great cal!! i’m excited for you and all this
(06/22 15:53:01) Jules Lavisham: Shall we do a quick Q&A?
(06/22 15:53:04) Calum Traveler: sure
(06/22 15:53:05) Cpt.Jericho: In case negotiation fail, you can send me XD
(06/22 15:53:07) [X]: go get pizza
(06/22 15:53:11) [X]: see you all
(06/22 15:53:13) [X] poofs
(06/22 15:53:15) Calum Traveler: ill get noodles later, x XD
(06/22 15:53:26) Jules Lavisham: Alright, opening things up to you lovely lot.
(06/22 15:53:34) WiIIy Makit: Hold the anchovies please.
(06/22 15:53:41) ALotOf: This – is – the – Rei’ – schu – of – Ma – ni -tu… phew paint-by-numbers shows the location of the treasure on the map, who’d have guessed…
(06/22 15:53:42) Mystlander: If anyone would like to join The Great Tree Hood, our fearless leader is on his way… 😀
(06/22 15:54:07) Keith Lord: Brian is in cavern?
(06/22 15:54:26) Cpt.Jericho: Prian?
(06/22 15:54:58) Jules Lavisham: As an aside, I want to thank you all for coming out here today
(06/22 15:55:20) Jules Lavisham: First one of these is always a little hair-raising for the likes of us
(06/22 15:55:39) Calum Traveler: yes, thanks for coming, everyone,
(06/22 15:55:41) Cpt.Jericho: Yeah, I understand after that little rant at the beginning
(06/22 15:55:43) Jules Lavisham: I have no doubt we’ll finesse the format as time goes on
(06/22 15:55:43) Calum Traveler: harrowing expereinces here…
(06/22 15:56:01) Calum Traveler: maybe it’s best Kelsei didn’t come- sometimes she gets terrible stagefright still
(06/22 15:56:19) Keith Lord: It was harrowing doing the DRC townhalls back in the day. I appreciate what you all have set up here.
(06/22 15:56:29) Jules Lavisham: But it’s been our hope to have the explorers get a chance to have their say in how things proceed
(06/22 15:56:37) Calum Traveler: we’ll have chatlogs posted later to the forums, blogs, and linked on discord,
(06/22 15:56:50) BIG thumbs up from ALotOf
(06/22 15:56:54) LividLiquid: Thank you for hosting, everybody. And for all of your hard work.
(06/22 15:56:59) Jules Lavisham: I hope this proves a sound way for that to happen, now and in the future.
(06/22 15:57:00) Carl Palmner: Just wanted to repeat something, since it was just mentioned to me in PM.
(06/22 15:57:05) Isa =^.^=: thank you all for including us
(06/22 15:57:13) Calum Traveler: and we’ll have news on these voted points in the coming weeks, too.
(06/22 15:58:36) TikiBear has a sash that ays Miss Hap
(06/22 15:58:43) Jules Lavisham puts on his OOC hat
(06/22 15:58:50) Calum Traveler: (We may need to do another Storytellers and Devs meeting,
(06/22 15:58:51) Jules Lavisham: Its a shame that went down as it did.
(06/22 15:58:51) Carl Palmner: Unfortunately, I accidentally made the message public and accidentally included Phoenix in it, both of which were unintentional.
(06/22 15:59:20) Carl Palmner: I’m moving that my unintentional message be stricken from the official log, and I’ll make a public statement on Discord about it to allay any concerns.
(06/22 15:59:23) Calum Traveler: (if people still have concerns about RP and stuff, we can make things clearer then, make a forum event for it maybe.
(06/22 15:59:30) Thumbs up from Isa =^.^=
(06/22 15:59:40) Carl Palmner: Just wanted to make that clear, and apologize for the mistakes.
(06/22 15:59:40) Jules Lavisham: It was the hope that by having specific scheduled IC events, that would go some way to involve those who want in on this action
(06/22 15:59:49) Jules Lavisham: And who know what they’re getting themselves into
(06/22 16:00:08) Calum Traveler: (yes, for sure, that’s the point of our attempts at advertising stuff, and pointing folks towards the forums.
(06/22 16:00:09) LividLiquid: I really like that.
(06/22 16:00:11) Jules Lavisham: I still think this is the best way to go about these sorts of things.
(06/22 16:00:21) Calum Traveler: (Let folks who know whats going on choose to interact.
(06/22 16:00:26) Cpt.Jericho: Really, if people want to be pisssed they’ll find a reason. No matter what you do.
(06/22 16:00:27) ALotOf: I think Claidi is okay with immersive story… she had concerns in the past, but mostly in direction that it doesn’t diminsh the efforts people have done to keep cavern alive through event hosting before reintroduce gametap era storytelling…
(06/22 16:00:37) Isa =^.^=: true Cpt
(06/22 16:01:01) Calum Traveler: (all things considered, I never expected our first event to actually get party crashed like that.
(06/22 16:01:09) Calum Traveler: (Our second or third, MAYBE, but… LOL
(06/22 16:01:18) Jules Lavisham: Well, there’s a reason we don’t try to major plot stuff during social events.
(06/22 16:01:22) Calum Traveler: yes
(06/22 16:01:26) Calum Traveler: a reiteration,
(06/22 16:01:26) Cpt.Jericho: And the fact that hardly anyone is using their real names mean they KNOW this is only a game
(06/22 16:01:41) Cpt.Jericho: We are all roleplaying in a way
(06/22 16:01:45) Calum Traveler: we’re sincerely trying to avoid bringing story stuff into other folks events,
(06/22 16:01:52) Tiernan Quinlan: (Right.
(06/22 16:01:52) Calum Traveler: oh, for sure, Jericho,
(06/22 16:02:04) Calum Traveler: Calum Traveler long since became a mask for me in that regard
(06/22 16:02:10) Calum Traveler: while a lot of the real me is in Calum,
(06/22 16:02:11) Isa =^.^=: but this wasn’t an outside event, so Im confused why the subject was brought up here by Phoenix.
(06/22 16:02:12) ALotOf: ‘Prad’ is getting pretty close to his real name lol…
(06/22 16:02:15) Murry: They have expressed their feelings. It shows we need to talk it over in a seperate place and time.
(06/22 16:02:36) Jules Lavisham: If I was feeling cynical, Isa, I would guess that it was griefing.
(06/22 16:02:43) Isa =^.^= nods her head
(06/22 16:02:44) Calum Traveler: Calum is… well. Calum. I am me, still separate from that, even if Calum was a large firm part of who i was
(06/22 16:02:48) Calum Traveler: for anyone curious,
(06/22 16:02:56) Calum Traveler: im going by the name Harley these days, outside of this story stuff,
(06/22 16:03:02) Jules Lavisham: They wanted the maximum amount of attention and had their spiel all planned out
(06/22 16:03:09) LividLiquid: It’s an important issue, and since this is the first event, it’s only natural somebody would raise it here before we really establish what this is.
(06/22 16:03:13) From IwonK: U R U, remember? 😉
(06/22 16:03:15) Cpt.Jericho: Plus: the “Rules” mentioned are naught here. There is no leveling system or skill system. You only need these crouches for competetive games
(06/22 16:03:17) LividLiquid: IMO.
(06/22 16:03:26) Isa =^.^=: the thing that they wanted Storytellers not to do, they did themselves? Seems not cool.
(06/22 16:03:35) Calum Traveler: as a group, we’re open for talking,
(06/22 16:03:46) Jules Lavisham: I would like to hope she is sincere and she does actually open a dialogue with us
(06/22 16:03:47) Calum Traveler: just reach out to us and we’ll be glad to talk concerns and talk shop
(06/22 16:03:55) Calum Traveler: to clarify one last thing
(06/22 16:03:59) Calum Traveler: for anyone who’s curious
(06/22 16:04:05) Calum Traveler: my remarks regarding Sami, Fasyk, and Tati,
(06/22 16:04:16) Calum Traveler: there was an oops on my part where I forgot to secure those names as avatars
(06/22 16:04:24) Calum Traveler: and then i assumed one of the other storytellers did
(06/22 16:04:28) Calum Traveler: but it turns out none of us did.
(06/22 16:04:43) Calum Traveler: hence, if you do see those names around, we’re not controlling them
(06/22 16:04:46) Cpt.Jericho: Seriously….
(06/22 16:04:51) Tiernan Quinlan: Right.
(06/22 16:04:52) Calum Traveler: and we’ll be reintroducing them under new names
(06/22 16:04:57) Scharminius: Gotta secure those patents 😉
(06/22 16:05:01) Jules Lavisham: Someone saw those names mentioned on the forums and decided to snag them
(06/22 16:05:07) Calum Traveler: (Tati and Fasyk are already in the, ah, list of names we gave out earlier)
(06/22 16:05:17) Calum Traveler: (see if you can figure them out via anagram nonsense later!)
(06/22 16:05:24) Cpt.Jericho: I seem to remember some Fezzik
(06/22 16:05:25) Carl Palmner: Diranda, Calum, and I were discussing the issues raised at the beginning of the meeting. I plan to draft an outline of rules for the Storytellers to vote on. I should be able to post it tomorrow.
(06/22 16:05:46) Carl Palmner: And now I gotta run.
(06/22 16:05:51) Calum Traveler: as for “Sami” I have her replacement avvie made as well
(06/22 16:05:53) Calum Traveler: later, carl,
(06/22 16:05:56) TikiBear: Thank you, Carl.
(06/22 16:05:59) Jules Lavisham: Yes, I need to scoot as well.
(06/22 16:06:01) Calum Traveler: you’ll see her around somewhere,
(06/22 16:06:02) Carl Palmner (I’m on the surface, be back in a minute):
(06/22 16:06:03) Calum Traveler: but, well
(06/22 16:06:06) Calum Traveler: she’s skittish :V
(06/22 16:06:06) Isa =^.^=: thank you Carl & Jules
(06/22 16:06:08) TikiBear waves goodbye
(06/22 16:06:18) Cpt.Jericho: So, when we see them it’s shoot on sight, right?
(06/22 16:06:21) Calum Traveler: nah
(06/22 16:06:21) Shocksound (I’m on the surface, be back in a minute):
(06/22 16:06:22) Jules Lavisham: Thank you all for coming out and roadtesting this little concept of ours!
(06/22 16:06:28) Tiernan Quinlan: Thanks everyone for helping us out!
(06/22 16:06:29) Calum Traveler: just ignore the Sami/Fasyk/Tati avvies if you see em
(06/22 16:06:35) Isa =^.^= nods her head
(06/22 16:06:37) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye.
(06/22 16:06:42) Calum Traveler: im not going to give them any more attention
(06/22 16:06:45) TikiBear: I will lure them to the butt cam.
(06/22 16:06:54) Jules Lavisham: If you want to follow the latest happenings, I recommend following the Beneath forums
(06/22 16:06:57) Calum Traveler: and this is the last im going to speak about it publicly in any way that would give them attention,
(06/22 16:06:57) Great Tree roars with laughter
(06/22 16:07:05) Tiernan Quinlan nods
(06/22 16:07:05) ALotOf: when you see them it’s just realizing they’re double-double agent sort of saboteurs… not to be taken as their true identities…
(06/22 16:07:24) Jules Lavisham: http://www.dniexplorer.com/forum/
